Pep Guardiola admits Manchester City were below their best after seeing the champions lose 2-0 at home to Wolves.
Defeat means Guardiola’s side now trail their Merseyside rivals by eight points heading into the international break, and the Catalan tactician admits the loss was a “bad day” for his side.
“We started decent, quite well but conceded counter-attacks. We were not at our best and when you concede a fast counter-attack, we had chances to score but it was a bad day and lost the game,” Guardiola told BBC Sport.
“We did not make good process, we had problems in that sense. We are a team that plays a specific way but it is a bad day, that happens sometimes.
“Kyle Walker did not feel good, he did not train well after an infection and we had to change him. Our process was not quite quick and that is why we had problems.
“When you win games, you think about the other one. Now we have the international break, then can come back and go to the other games.”
